"Every single member of the team is dedicated to giving our competition a hard time"




Buckle up, sit back and enjoy the ride. We’re at Portimão this weekend for the Portuguese Grand Prix and, just in case our podium last time out wasn’t exciting enough for you, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve – with its dizzying elevation changes and fiendishly tricky twists and turns – has all the ingredients to throw up a rollercoaster race.

 

How to follow

Round      3
Where      Autódromo Internacional do Algarve
When     30 April - 2 May
Start time     15:00 local, 15:00 BST, 10:00 EDT

 

ANDREAS SEIDL, Team Principal


“This weekend sees us start the first double-header of the season as we prepare to go racing in Portugal then Spain. Portimão was a welcome addition to the calendar last year and it’s great to be returning to race there again.


Back-to-back events provide a unique set of challenges for the team that we’re well prepared for. Reliability, operational effectiveness and the management of spare parts are crucial to the success of these weekends.



“Imola again provided confirmation of the step forward we’ve made as a team, which is encouraging to see. Both drivers are doing a good job on-track and have scored some important points for the Constructors’ Championship over the first two races.

 

 

It’s important that we keep the positive momentum and energy up. There’s still a lot of work to do as we look to keep pushing and deliver upgrades that are in the pipeline. We also need to continue to maximise any opportunities that present themselves and make the right decisions to stay in the mix.



Every single member of the team is dedicated to giving our competition a hard time out on track. We remain focused and are ready to go again this weekend.”
